Memory Books: Collect, Reflect, Collage, Create

Wednesdays, March 14–April 18, 1:30–3:30 p.m.

About the Program

A travel ticket, an old photograph, a song that takes you to another place and time. Stories about people, places, and events, all told as we remember them, can become a rich treasure trove to share with others.

In this hands-on workshop, explore a variety of ways to format your written words, images, and objects into a memory book to share with family and friends. Produce short writing samples and then learn how to lay out those memories as pages of a book. Expect an adventure that can be emotional, funny or sad, scary or exhilarating. Re-explore your favorite memories, write them down, and save them for future generations.
